Cutesy tiny historic building, restaurants next door, clean and bug-free. Advertised a hot breakfast - was provided bread and fruit slices. The lobby was small and cramped, not enough seating. Some websites advertised a bar and room service which was not available. Our room was small and cramped, constantly tripped over luggage. No comfortable restorative sleep here -- A/C went...

It's a great location right on Ocean Drive across from the beach, walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go.The look and feel of the hotel is wonderful, art deco style. Our room was very cozy and the bed was extremely comfortable. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I would definitely...

If this hotel keeps up the same service I had experienced, without a doubt, this will be one of the most successful hotels in the world. My partners flight was delayed for more than 15 hrs, it took me ONE phone call to this hotel who accepted my request to move our reservation the day after (with NO penalties, I...

Stayed here for one night with my wife. Pros: location, location, location! Literally across the street from the beach. Turn right out of hotel, tons of bars, restaurants, nightlife. Turn left out of hotel, great restaurants. Check out Madero for a fantastic burger or steak! Very clean and beautifully decorated. Loved the hardwood floors in room instead of filthy carpets....

Perfect location: right at the north edge of art deco district; so we have all the easy access to beach walk, bars, etc. but still can retreat to some quieter location to sleep. Newly redecorated, very comfortable rooms in slick style, excellent mattress, very quiet, excellent breakfast. Excellent reception and information service; great help to schedule tours, restaurants, etc. Excellent...

Although I love the aesthetics and location of this great little boutique hotel, I can not give it a full five stars as I had an extremely hard time sleeping.

Stayed at the Cavalier South with my daughters over the weekend. The check in process was painfully lengthy and the lobby is cramped.
